  2. Canada is a country of private land ownership, but the country still owns a lot of land such as: national parks, wetlands, mountains and land that is not suitable for people to live or farm. Hunters have designed the country (both state-owned and privately owned) as a breeding ground for wildlife in a purely natural way. In order to protect the environment and maintain the ecological balance, the government has very strict regulations on hunting, and only certain animals can be hunted at certain times and in certain areas. Illegal hunting is punishable by a fine of 25,000 dollars and a ban on hunting for 8 years.
  3. In the process of implementing this program, the country has formed a complete industrial chain by increasing financial income and creating employment opportunities. More than 94% of Canada's land is actually under wildlife control, and according to statistics, Canada's wildlife saturation is 300%.
  4. Thousands of American, European and Russian tourists and hunters come to Canada to hunt every year. From the Rocky Mountains around British Columbia, to Alberta, Manitoba, the prairies of Saskatchewan, to Ontario, known as "Deer Hunting Paradise", to the three provinces adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean, and then the world's first fishing grounds called Newfoundland, in short, here is the paradise of hunting, Canada is also one of the world's best hunting grounds;

  1. Rampant poaching in Africa requires the hiring of a considerable number of rangers, and local African governments in general have financial difficulties; African governments also need to protect endangered species, and can only obtain funds through trophy hunting in this particular way. Theoretically, in some cases, through reasonable "sport hunting", the hunting of a trophy bird can only be financed through this special way.Theoretically speaking, in some cases, through reasonable "sport hunting", the revenue gained from hunting a trophy can protect 2500 to 3000 of its kind.
  1. South Africa is the world's hunter's Shangri-La, the local people in their own completely ecological manor breeding a large number of wild animals, mainly to meet the needs of hunting enthusiasts from various countries, but also for the safari parks in various countries to provide a lot of ornamental animals. Every year, the South African safari parks and nature reserves will report to the Hunting Association the types and numbers of these animals to be eliminated, and then get the approval of the hunting quota.
  2. According to data published by the South African Professional Hunters Association in 2011, the commercial hunting industry in South Africa is worth approximately US$91.2 million per year. Participants are mostly foreign tourists, especially Americans.

An Introduction to the Australian Hunting Market:

Hunting Season: Duck hunting has a fixed period of time, Victoria, then, from the third Saturday in March at sunrise, to the second Monday in June half an hour after sunset end

Main Hunting Grounds: Very often the deer hunting activities are in the high mountains in the northeast of Victoria, and sometimes even have to cross the border line to track the deer to the territory of New South Wales.

National or Regional Background:

  1. More than two hundred years ago, white European colonizers came to Australia, and apart from bringing guns and iron weapons, they also brought with them many species not originally found on this continent, such as pigs, sheep, horses, cows and other domestic animals, in order to facilitate their lives. Later, because of the negligence of the colonizers, some domestic animals began to escape into the nature without natural enemies, reproduced rapidly, and in the natural environment in accordance with the principle of survival faded domesticated characteristics, to restore the original wild nature. These are the wild boar and bison that now trouble Australians so much. Both of these animals now have large populations. They eat vegetation, destroy woodlands and compete with humans for food (the Aboriginal people's favorite food, turtles). It takes several years for forested areas that have been overrun by feral hogs to recover, but their continued destruction actually makes recovery less and less likely. To minimize this destruction, Australian society encouraged the hunting of these pests. Hunting has become an element of modern Australian culture.
  2. Hunting is strictly regulated by law. In general, there are only three types of animals that can be hunted: excessive numbers that exceed the carrying capacity of the environment; species introduced to Australia for hunting purposes, such as pheasants and deer; and exotic species that directly jeopardize biodiversity, such as wild rabbits and foxes. These two were also originally introduced as prey by early European settlers, but of course have now become demonic pest animals. In the northern hemisphere there are jackals, wolves, tigers and leopards to control fox populations, in Australia the fox, lacking natural predators, reigns supreme, with the Victorian Department of Agriculture offering a bounty on foxes, and there are collection points in all capitals.Victoria is an administrative region with an early legal system, and laws and regulations related to hunting were introduced in the 1860s. The current agency managing recreational hunting is the GameManagementAuthority (GMA). All sport and recreational hunting is regulated and licensed by this agency.
  3. Victoria is an early adopter of the legal system, with hunting laws and regulations in place since the The current agency that regulates recreational hunting is the GameManagementAuthority (GMA). All sport and recreational hunting is regulated and licensed by this agency.

New Zealand has a temperate oceanic climate, with little difference in temperature between the four seasons, and very lush plant growth, with 29% forest cover and natural pastures or farms accounting for half of the country's land area. The only native mammal in New Zealand is the bat. For this reason, European colonizers introduced a variety of hunting species to satisfy their appetite for hunting. Lacking natural predators, these species once thrived. Today, the populations of these creatures are reasonably controlled by safe and regulated hunting. Hunting is permitted for deer (red, flat and merganser), antelope, tarsiers, wild boar, wallabies, goats and possums to name a few. In addition, New Zealand has superb waterfowl and upland bird hunting.

Main Hunting Grounds: The oldest foxhunting ground is located in Birdsdale, North Yorkshire, since 1670. Another famous foxhunt is at Cowan in Leicestershire, dating from 1696.

National or Regional Context:

  1. In 1066, the French Dukes of Normandy conquered England and with them the Norman tradition of hunting was brought to England. At that time, hunting deer and wild boar was an exclusive privilege of the royal family and superior guests. Afterwards, this privilege was gradually granted to the nobles and landowners, and the hunting culture in England gradually emerged and spread.
  2. In the 16th century, England's farmers found that foxes were a serious danger to farmland, and at the same time, the number of deer, a favorite hunting object, gradually decreased, and hunting foxes brought the joy of the chase, making it the ideal prey.
  3. The late 17th century to the beginning of the 18th century, organized fox hunting activities gradually became popular with the British upper class favorite leisure activities. For many participants, the purpose of going on a big hunt was to take part in the socializing that took place at the beginning and end of the roundup. To some extent, hunting is a symbol of status and position in a particular social circle.
  4. At present, the British hunting activities supporters are mostly aristocrats, tycoons and hunting industry practitioners; in recent years, the number of British aristocrats to reduce the activity also tends to be cold. Many foreigners, including many Chinese tycoons are attracted by the British culture to go to Britain to hunt, and become the new force of hunting activities.
